Bear Creek Veterinary HOSPITAL
HOSPITAL-That means we are able to continue therapy on an overnight basis. Sometimes the risk is too great for your sick baby to go prolonged periods of time without medication or the medication is difficult to administer (IV antibiotics and pain medications). Your doctor may recommend that we keep your animal overnight for continued therapy. The doctors and staff at Bear Creek will take the best care possible of your pet, but please note that we are not staffed 24/7 at this time and your pet will be unattended for several hours during the night. Our policy is to plan for care at critical points and medication administration when needed, even if it is at night or on the weekend. It makes for a really long day the next day but it is worth it. Your baby means a lot to us and we take our job seriously.
If we feel that your pet requires more in-depth 24-hr observation or intensive care that we cannot provide, we will recommend referral to a specialist or trauma center.
Hospitalization costs depend on the intensity of care needed. It ranges from level I, basic feeding and monitoring, to Level IV, isolation care.
Limited boarding for healthy pets is available but this is currently limited to only our smaller dogs (<25lbs) and cats as well as pet pigs. We choose to focus on the medical care and treatment of your pets. Our kennel spaces are limited and we want to make sure we keep the sick patients the priority.
We cannot provide you or your pet transportation to or from the hospital.
